Barny is a young, widowed mother living in a small town in the French Alps during the Occupation of France, whose Jewish husband was killed in the war. The jaded and sexually-frustrated Barny works as a secretary in the local school, and finds herself allured by her female boss, Sabine. A lapsed Catholic-turned-atheist, Barny is cynical about religion and is a militant communist.

As a source of amusement, Barny one day enters a church in town randomly chooses a priest to make a confession to. She decides on the young Léon Morin, as she observes that his name does not sound bourgeois in nature. While in confessional, Barny attempts to provoke Léon by criticizing Catholicism. Instead of being affronted, the priest engages her in an intellectual discussion regarding religion. The handsome and altruistic Léon invites Barny to continue the conversation outside of confessional, which she skeptically obliges.
